January 2023

Here we are, a brand new year. 

I already have my fishing license for this year. 

I have all my gear ready to throw into the truck. 

The downcountry lakes await me. The lakes up the hill are under about 10 feet of snow. 

I've pretty much recovered from the surgeries last year.

Now all I need is for it to STOP raining. We've had one day without rain since December 26th. Yes, it is raining outside as I type this with the prospect of rain through Thursday the 19th. 

We haven't had any flooding. Can't say as much for the folks at the apartments around the corner. New Years Eve flooded the parking lot as it sits beside the drainage creek (which over flowed) for the local neighborhood. I counted at least a dozen cars under water.  

Then it looks like I might be able to do some fishing. Weather Channel says no rain for 9 days after the 19th. 

Lakes should be full. 

Lakes should be muddy, for a while at least. 

Trout fishing is on the horizon. 

Creeks and rivers should slow down. 

Magnet fishing is on the horizon.

Stay tuned.

    Unreal the amount of rain you guys are gettting there----by the way fishing licenses here in Alabama are free after age 65.
